Interest in Cults

Post by Red » Wed Mar 27, 2019 8:21 pm

I'm inventing a new word and discipline: Latreology (latreía from Greek meaning 'Cult' and ology). The study of Cults.

Last month I was assigned to do a report on a cult known as The Holy Order of MANS, which made me pretty interested in cults.
Cults are interesting case studies into human behavior. The more obscure, the better. I think I'm just fascinated by the macabre of it all, and how people manage to have insane beliefs even more crazy than a lot of mainstream stuff. I do think they are pretty harmful towards society in general however.

I'm getting a new book about it, albeit it's very expensive:

Thoughts on cults?
